Wideawake's Custom AKU2.2
First I should warn that PPCGeeks.com nor me will not be held responsible if something were to go wrong.
That being said its like any other update.....all you have to do is download the files from a link listed below. Extract them to the desktop open the the folder. Read the readme and run the .exe, same as the offical ones, BUT your PPC HAS TO BE IN BOOTLOADER MODE BEFORE running the .exe. (Hold power button, notes key, and soft reset) This ROM doesnt have to many "seen" differences, most changes have be made behind the scenes.
I didnt remove the built-in voice dialer, because Im sure most dont use MSVC. Big thanks to isamu49
for his script to replace the bootscreen and providing me with all the carrier logos! Major thanks to XDA-Developers, and Buzzdev.net
for the knowlege and tools used in the creation of this custom AKU 2.2! PLEASE HARD RESET AFTER YOU UPGRADE
. I will be adding my extROM and full packages later today, just wanted to roll out the base OS for everyone.
Enjoy your new Custom AKU2.2!
Note: Upgrade CANNOT be done on a PC running Windows Vista, must be a XP machine.
